"These are our gods, and we are the coin with which they play their ineffable game."

A thousand years ago, the five gods of Anora defeated one from their ranks. Aderyn, the god of free will and creation was abolished in a war remembered as the Soulfire Crisis. His followers were routed and his works destroyed. Eventually, Aderyn and his realm, the Cradle, were erased almost entirely from Anora.

Today, you are an exiled traveler in flight from the wrath of Ostia. Pursued and cursed by the god of hunger for defying his will, you seek refuge in the last of Aderyn's shrines. There, you take up arms for Aderyn, and begin a journey to return his Cradle to Anora. This land, once the center of technology and culture for the world, stands empty. Its inhabitants have either perished or become twisted parodies of who they once were. Only a few managed to retain some of their sanity.Your victory depends on the advice of these last few survivors and their tenuous grip on reality.

Fight your way through these ravaged lands, journeying to diverse environments and defeating a wide array of enemies. By uncovering the mysteries of the Cradle you will ensure not only your own survival, but help Aderyn return to the world with his promise to the human race: free will.

  • Cradle features a groundbreaking fast-paced system for melee combat driven by your intent and purpose.
  • When you attack in Cradle it is not a stand-in for a random number generator, the actual strike of your weapon is what determines damage.
  • With deterministic animations we will provide immersive attack animations that always make sense for the part of your opponent you're aiming at.
  • Cradle's highly responsive attack and movement systems provide unprecedented control and fluidity in player movement and combat.
  • We intend to give the combat a feeling reminiscent of the fluid firefights of the best first-person shooters with a hint of the first-person melee combat from classic first person-fighting games.
  • In Cradle, you fight with your wits and your reflexes, not dice.

Maintaining your health and stamina in Cradle will require exploration. You will need to forage for plants and herbs to make life saving salves. Discovering combinations of ingredients and finding the right recipes is the key to survival. Regenerate your health in the heat of battle, or create poultices to permanently enhance your resilience. Learning your environment will save your life.

Cradle, Mana is not just a bar that refills over time or when you chug a potion. It's a direct connection between you and the environment. As the physical manifestation of the damage done to Aderyn's realm because of its removal from Anora, mana is a powerful resource. Harnessing this energy can greatly enhance your defensive and offensive capabilities, but only if you can tap into the magical corruption of the world around you.

What's a good adventure without a few good secrets?
Cradle's exploration will be driven not only by the search for weapons and tools to aid you in your journey, but also by your own quest to uncover the hidden history of the Cradle. As you explore the vast world, you can expect to find hidden stories and treasures that reveal the past, present, and future, of the Cradle.

Guys be careful there's another game in the making also called cradle, you can find their green light page here. Steamcommunity.com

And their home page here.

Is better if you talk with them about the naming.

Thank you! We're already fully aware of the other Cradle that's being developed. We don't see this as being an issue to either title!

It can be a issue if they have copyright on the name, i don't know if they have, but imo is better if you guys talk with them just to make things clean, this is just a personal opinion but the same naming can also leave to confusion to both parties, is never good practice to make a game with the same name as another.
